I personally have never been to Moab and probably never will visit there. However I find this to be the biggest battle we as ORV enthusiats could fight. Moab is the biggest name in offroading destinations. Its the "big House" of open wheeling areas. Everyone knows Moab regaurdless if they are into wheeling or not. If they get Moab it will be a HUGE victory for them and in return make it much easier to close trails all across the US. This is a big battle guys!

They have a status on their page asking if you or your family are wearing redwing boots.
Feel free to tell them why you aren't.

Well written emails and facebook posts on some of the brands pages, I sometimes forget we are not a bunch of " toothless cousin F-----s" on here.
I'm also compiling a list of companies to avoid from here on out.

Copied From Pirate4x4...

Dear BRC Members and supporters,

We just uploaded a webpage with important information and updates requested by our members and supporters concerning a request made by the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) and 113 outdoor retailers asking President Obama to designate a massive 1.4 million acre National Monument in southeastern Utah. See BRC's previous blast here. Read OIA's request here.

The webpage is here: Important Follow-up on Massive National Monument Pushed in Utah
Many BRC members were, to be frank, heartbroken to find that many companies they used to buy from supported a massive new National Monument. BRC members are also frustrated and bewildered at the reasons these companies are giving for their support.

This follow up includes an update from Utah's congressional delegation and a letter to the President from the national OHV community. We also have some facts and figures regarding the proposal, as well as information on how the lands are currently protected and managed.

IMPORTANT:
Many BRC members are asking what they can do to stop yet another land grab in Utah. While there are numerous petitions and "click and send" letter generators out there, we strongly encourage you to consider what is the most effective use of your time - a phone call. Why a call instead of signing a petition or letter generator? In today's world of online digital communication, your voice can often get lost or diluted. Phone calls are the exception. A call to your elected representatives is the #1 most effective way to keep these lands open for OHV use. (Click here and enter your zip code for the phone numbers.)

As always, please feel free to call or email with questions and comments.


Brian Hawthorne
Public Lands Policy Director
208-237-1008 ext 102


Ric Foster
Public Lands Dept. Manager

PS: We know many BRC members are in contact with individual businesses who supported the OIA proposal. We also know they would rather not take their business elsewhere. Several of the businesses are now backing away from their support of the monument because they found out they were misled by the proponents who came to them asking them to sign on. However, it is important you support businesses that support continued access and recreation on public lands.

This is the response I received from Red Wing Shoes

Thank you for taking the time to write to us in regards to the letter written by the Outdoor Industry Association. We have always given the utmost value to the voice of our fans and customers and are very appreciative of your opinions regarding Utah and the classification of the state’s 1.4 million acre Greater Canyonlands.



While work is our work, we value the positive effects of play as well. America’s open spaces provide us all with resources for enjoyment and recreation. The wilderness of the United States is a window into our past and embodies much of the diverse character and allure of our country. For these reasons, we support the preservation of the Utah Greater Canyonlands in a manner that is conducive to public use and enjoyment. We know firsthand that outdoor recreational enthusiasts are a responsible and caring group, having many of them in our employment, and do not wish to see the public barred from the appreciation of Utah’s wilderness.



We are confident that a solution to this issue can be reached where the public may continue to enjoy this majestic area while Utah’s natural beauty continues to be preserved.



In regards to the letter written by the Outdoor Industry Association, we agree that Utah’s Greater Canyonlands require protection and preservation. However, we do not support closing the area to the public or a full ban of recreational vehicles within the Greater Canyonlands, a proposal which is not mentioned in the letter. Rather, we support further investigation into how to best preserve this natural treasure while continuing to allow the public enjoyment of these lands.



Thank you for your outspokenness on this issue and for allowing us to articulate our position. We hope this clarifies the issue and resolves your concerns. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to continue reaching out to us.



Sincerely,

I am OK with that stance, so long as they actually do intend on supporting continued ORV use in the area though responsible use. . . . I fear that is not their stance however.
